PNC to be Exclusive Sponsor of CTC Executive Institute for Fifth Year

Within the AFP Annual Conference, Executives Will Focus on Building a World-Class Treasury

BETHESDA, MD –– August 20, 2013–– The Association for Financial Professionals (AFP) announced today that The PNC Financial Services Group, Inc., will be the exclusive sponsor for the CTC Executive Institute, which will take place at the 2013 AFP Annual Conference October 27-30 in Las Vegas.  The institute’s theme for 2013 is Building a World-Class Treasury.

This influential program provides an environment where the most senior level of corporate finance executives can candidly discuss the challenges they face on the job and explore techniques for addressing those challenges.

"Building a world-class treasury requires a mix of strategic and personal strengths that are often invisible to those below the C-suite level.  The topics that resonate within our Corporate Treasurers Council will form the basis of this event," said Jim Kaitz, AFP's president and chief executive. “We are especially honored to have PNC’s exclusive sponsorship for so many years."

The CTC Executive Institute is complimentary to executives attending the 2013 AFP Annual Conference and is limited to chief financial officers, treasurers, vice presidents of finance, assistant treasurers and controllers.

“PNC works with financial executives from companies of all sizes on solutions that meet today's treasury demands. The CTC Executive Institute offers a forum for industry thought leaders to contemplate challenges, and to take best practices to a whole new level,” said James Graham, executive vice president and head of treasury management at PNC. The two half-days of educational sessions, speakers and panel discussions will focus on the subtle but important skills needed by strategic finance leaders.

The institute’s educational sessions will be flanked by a keynote luncheon addresses by legendary speaker George Bodenheimer, Executive Chairman, ESPN, and Daniel L. Doctoroff, CEO of Bloomberg, L.P.

Session highlights include:

* Developing Extraordinary Leaders – by Jordan Krugman, Treasurer, Invesco, and Joe Folkman,  Co-founder and President, Zenger Folkman

* Closing the Board and C-Suite Risk Communication Gap – with representatives from Oliver Wyman as well as a CFO and board member of the NACD.
